The Caribbean Laser Midwinter Regatta is back in Cabarete, Dominican Republic for its 17th annual sailing event. All aboard, sailors, the North Coast of the DR is your midwinter Laser sailing destination!
CaribWind has announced the Midwinter Regatta will take place on the 18th to the 20th January 2019. This is deliberately timed not to overlap with the big Miami Regatta on the 27th January.
There will be two classes racing, Laser Standard and Laser Radial. All members are invited to register.
Ali Barshi and his wife MJ created CaribWind in 2003. Though avid windsufers, they missed sailing and craved a place to rock up and sail with proper supervision, at any time of the year.
The couple saw the wind conditions in Cabarete as ideal for Laser sailors. The sheltered bay is perfect for sailing. The wind picks up over the course of the day, so you can be selective and sail at the time that suits your ability.
Eleven years on Ali and MJ have no regrets. The CaribWind training program is thriving. It is open to sailors and aspiring sailors of all abilities. Even if you don’t own a Laser, the team at CaribWind will sort you out with everything you need to get out on the water.
